Lectures and Seminars


The CUArb runs a series of lectures each term in cooperation with the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law. These lectures discuss the current hot topics in both international commercial and investment arbitration. Periodically, the CUArb organises discussion panels to address some of the pressing issues in international arbitration. These lectures and panels are given by academics, judges, arbitrators and practitioners. The CUArb also organises an annual conference besides the Cambridge Arbitration Day each year.


Throughout the year, the CUArb organises seminars and workshops to address the Cambridge students’ need to have exposure to arbitration. The main seminars include ‘the International Commercial Arbitration and the Sales Law Seminars’ on the occasion of the Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot and an extensive ‘summer program in international commercial arbitration’ given by academics and practitioners. Other practical workshops are organised periodically.
